CAMILLA, GA (WALB) - A good deal wasn't hard to find in South Georgia Saturday. Camilla was part of the "High Cotton" 65-mile long regional yard sale.This is the second year Mitchell, Baker, Calhoun and Clay counties held the event.

None of the counties involved made any money from this event. It's a chance for churches, schools and local organizations to raise money for their projects. And some say these bargains couldn't have come at a better time.

"To help people out with the way the economy is, people are looking for a bargain. We had one lady come up this morning that was hunting for a coat for her little son.

She said her ex-husband wasn't paying child support, and this was the only way she could afford one. And we let her have it for as much as she wanted it for," said Mary Ann Hooks.

This is one of only three regional yard sales in the state. And is the only one in South Georgia.
